First, we’ll celebrate God’s grace and love. With readings. Prayers. Testimonies of thanks. And glorious music, including performances by:
» Duquesne University Alumni, Students, and Friends
» Rev. Toni Turner and Rev. John A. Cannon III
» The Heritage Gospel Chorale of Pittsburgh
All faiths and ages welcome.
Then we’ll pack one million tasty and nutritious Meals of Hope for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. We hear it will be a record. We know it will be a lot of fun—all while providing real help for people in need.

How Amen to Action got it's start:
2017 marks a year of milestones for two major church happenings. One was the 1517 Reformation, sparked by Martin Luther, which led to the rise of Protestantism. The second was the Catholic Charismatic movement, a true revival that started in 1957 at Duquesne University and spread throughout the world.
As we—a group of Pittsburgh laymen and church leaders—contemplated the confluence of these events, we began a series of meetings to discuss a vision for a major city-wide happening.
Our shared goal is to connect people of all faiths, creating a platform of unity and amassing spiritual capital more powerful than “all the coal in the hills and steel in the mills...that Pittsburgh will become a spiritual power plant for the rest of the world.”
